FOR ME, FOR YOU, FOR EVERYONE:

Men, women and transgenders, IDU (Injecting Drug Users) as well as established meeting places, bars, clubs and other establishments.

Regardless of the health insurance of the beneficiary: IMSS, ISSSTE or others or in case of not having this, help affiliate with the popular insurance for their adequate care.

BRIGADES FOR LIFE

Prevention campaigns in neighborhoods and delegations in order to bring our services to the entire population in order to make an early and timely detection by means of the rapid testing for HIV additionally promoting prevention by providing free inputs such as condoms and lubricants in public and / or open spaces and in this way to help reduce the stigma associated with HIV.

All this is done taking the rule of confidentiality and freedom from discrimination.

DONATE MILK

Being breast milk a transmitter potential for Human Immunodeficiency Virus this program supports infants born from mothers living with HIV with milk substitutes for up to two years or more if is needed.

This is granted from the sixth month of birth or what is the second stage of lactation, as the first must be covered by the Seguro Popular or their appropriate health institution in case of being affiliated.

The purpose of having the necessary supplement of powdered formula is to avoid that these mothers mostly low-income or underage result in a precarious situation, choose to natural breastfeed their children transmitting the virus.

WOMEN TALKING TO WOMEN

This project consists in empowering women volunteer leaders so they can talk with other women about HIV and AIDS and Sexually Transmitted Infections.

From experience we know that many women do not come to ask for information or even to take the quick test by prejudices and taboos about their sex lives and the risks they have taken, which is why we think about them to provide that confidence and we can answer all your doubts.

With this project also aims to reach places where women have not much chance to discuss these issues professionally and with skilled people, for example workplaces, neighborhoods where these services are not very common, sex workers, programs of DIF etc.

PrEP

PrEP is short for Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis and is a medication regimen to reduce the likelihood of contracting HIV. A once daily pill can be 92%-100% effective at preventing HIV. Currently, the only medication that has been FDA-approved to be used as PrEP is Truvada®, which combines emtricitabine and tenofovir. PrEP requires a prescription as well as special health considerations.

PRE = BEFORE

EXPOSURE = COMING INTO CONTACT WITH HIV

PROPHYLAXIS = TREATMENT TO PREVENT AN INFECTION

PrEP does NOT protect against other sexually transmitted infections and is NOT a vaccine.

PrEP is different than PEP.

PEP

PEP is short for Post-Exposure Prophylaxis. PEP is a sort of morning-after pill for HIV and must be taken within 72 hours of possible HIV exposure.

If someone who is HIV negative and not already taking PrEP experiences sexual violence or has sex without a condom with someone who might be living with HIV, they should reach out to a doctor or local AIDS Service Organization about starting PEP. PEP is a 30 day prescription of powerful anti-HIV medications and should only be taken when necessary.

S.O.S.  ADHERENCE

We offer support to people who for different reasons health institutions do not give them their medication on time to continue in adherence. Also this service is provided to foreigners who decide to extend their stay in Puerto Vallarta and do not have the necessary dose to do it. All this under the supervision and guidance of CAPASITS Puerto Vallarta.
